Not that I'm aware of. SLI just means two 680M chips in one and you would have to have a laptop that would accept that upgrade which I'm not sure there are any. Not to mention how expensive it would be.

Are you sure you don't mean the desktop cards?

no.even if you can, you cant put it into a laptop since most laptops dont have that kind of power delivery system. not to mention if you are getting a 680m you may as well just get a gtx 670

no. you cant even build your own laptop. not to mention mobile graphics are not to be sold other than to the OEMs. and if you are getting a high end laptop, you are way better off with a proper desktop

I'm not sure what you're looking for exists. You can't just add a mobile graphics card to a laptop. You have to buy a brand new laptop with that chip inside it. It's not able to be upgraded.

What you are looking for is readily available. Clevo supplies lappies chassis capable of such an upgrade or original build, but you have to have a compatible MoBo and chassis

If you had one with the single 680M and wanted to upgrade, it could certainly be done.... whether you could find someone willing to sell you the parts is another story. I have had my GPU upgraded in a Clevo laptop tho it was done during a warranty replacement, I just paid for the difference in cost between the one that died and the newer one.

yeah its just as hard to find a laptop motherboard for the specific clevo and then find the rest of the components yourself

I think everyone is getting way ahead of themselves. The OP didn't say anything about wanting a new system. He wanted to buy a 680m SLI for his current system, probably after seeing some benchmarks and thinking it was just a matter of putting a new card in.

Also, it's at least the second time he's made this thread.
